We are just back from 2 weeks in the Hawaiian Islands and one of our most memorable days was spent with Kyle on his Whaler on Oahu. Our family of 3 met Kyle at the marina where he launched his boat, and off we went towards Coconut Island. Not long out into the bay we were stopped by the Coast... More

Our group of 4 adults contacted Kyle via email and we received a quick reply within 24 hours with pricing and availability. We booked a trip the next day and he took us out for a fun morning of snorkeling, sand bar photo ops, and a beach lunch picnic. Our first stop was at Coconut Island where we went snorkeling... More

Our family of 4 spent a day discovering Kaneohe Bay on a 17' Boston Whaler owned by a life-long Kaneohe resident named Kyle. What a day it was. He introduced us to Coconut Island (aka "Gilligan's Island) where our 5 and 3 year old got to hand feed a host of beautiful fish. Next we spent a coupe of hours... More

Kyle was great. Spoke to him a week before we were arriving and he was on vacation. I think he is getting quite busy just from word of mouth. I emailed him once we arrived and received an email back that he was busy the entire week. I left a "pleading" voice mail that we could go any time that... More

Kyle's rad. I highly recommend him. I have been to Oahu several times but had never been on a small boat and decided that was what I wanted to do this time. When I found the sandbar online - I knew this was the place, and then I found Kyle, because the larger boat tours looked both restrictive and pricey.... More

If you want to do something truly unique, truly off the beaten path, call Captain Kyle and get out in the bay with him. There is a sandbar in the middle of the bay - which doesnt really describe it well - its like an island that rises and sinks as the tides go in and out of the bay... More

Our family had a wonderful day seeing all the beautiful and "secret" spots in Kaneohe Bay. Kyle instantly made us feel like we were friends and his knowledge, and love of the Bay is evident. If you want a private, custom experience book with him! We went snorkeling, out to the sandbar, toured around all of his favorite spots. The... More

The BEST experience I had on my recent trip to Oahu...one of my favorite experiences in Hawaii EVER! Kudos to Kyle for being so friendly, accomodating, knowledgeable, and full of the spirit of aloha! Toured around several places in Kaneohe Bay..but my favorite, by far was just stopping at the sandbar and wading around. A surreal experience surrounded by absolutely... More
